Languages have always been part of my life; I was brought up in a trilingual environment (Spanish mother, Syrian father, in the UK), studied Modern Foreign Languages at university, and I have used my languages throughout my career. Languages have enriched my personal and professional life, and I firmly believe in the benefits of learning a foreign language from a young age. I love Chicago for all its wonderful neighborhoods; there are new and different experiences everywhere you go.
By sharing and instilling my love and enthusiasm of languages, I am a teacher committed to developing academic and personal skills to the maximum of all pupils. I believe, that through my Spanish and Arabic heritage, pupils will gain a better understanding of the international world in which we live. Helping pupils gain an insight into other cultures and beliefs leads to a greater respect of people from all walks of life and promotes internationally minded pupils.
